I’ve been in a strong anti-underwire phase for the last few months. I love how bras look, but even the most comfortable bra feels restrictive these days. I’ve gone from wearing a wired bra every day, to wearing one maybe twice a month. But after a […]
Are bras over? With so many of us working from home in fancy loungewear or just going pantsless during isolation for COVID-19, typical clothing norms are changing. Like, sure, I love bras. But sitting here in my favorite silk robe, just the thought of putting on some of my most structured, lift-y, push-up-y bras is enough to make my skin crawl. I’m not the only one.

The modern day sheer-tulle-with-tattoo-lace trend can largely be attributed to Fleur of England. Whilst I’m hesitant to claim the brand invented it, they’re almost certainly responsible for driving it to such widespread and recent popularity.

Uye Surana is an independent brand from NYC with a commitment to ethical manufacturing, supportive bralets and gorgeous textiles. Their products are all sewn in-house in small quantities, and Surana’s designs offer a refreshing take on the overdone strappy trend.

I’ve been wanting to try Uye Surana for a while, so felt pretty lucky when I offered some of their products to review. I chose the Claire bralet, panty and a Deep-V Layering cami.
